    We. The Revolution - Review

    We. The Revolution is a Historical Strategy game developed by Polish indie game studio Polyslash and published by Klabater. In the game, you play the role of a judge seeing through different cases of civilians, criminals, enemies and revolutionists ultimately deciding their fate. The game was released on March 21st, 2019 on Steam.


    First Impressions and Gameplay

    We. The Revolution is inspired and pays homage to the well-renowned game Papers, Please. Set in the 18th-century during the French Revolution in Paris, The player plays the role of a Judge belonging to the Revolutionary Tribunal whose job is to decide the fate among many citizens, criminals revolutionists and many others. The game lets you look through different cases of people breaking the law, and you decide whether they should face prison time, get acquitted or must there a harsh penalty such as death and execution await for them. The playable character also happens to look after his own family and seems to posses a gambling and drinking habit. 



    As your character gains influence upon more people, he can start power struggles and can involve himself into conspiracy theories and darker political matters. whatever choice you make as a character greatly influences the outcomes of many events throughout the game where the character's own family or loved ones may also intervene and state if they are upset or happy with the choices that he makes.As a player you may choose to make enemies, make friends or make them disappear if they are being a bothersome to you. A lot of variety of gameplay exists such as questioning the witness, analysing all the clues, reading reports and if found guilty based on your judgement and morals you choose to pass sentences during uprising of the French Revolution.




    Verdict

    We. The Revolution is a fantastically crafted game with a lot of twists and turns based on the art form some describe as "cubism", pioneered by the great Historic artist pioneered by Pablo Picasso. The game currently has an 82 % positive rating on the steam store and is a must if gamers are into decision making strategy game with great visual artistry. A lot of carefully handcrafted cut scenes are present in the game which unfolds in a comic fashion but preserves the conventional cubism art form. Characters have a lot of dialogue bars and various ways of interaction with the player. Although execution scenes are deemed to be violent but it all adds to the suspense of the 18th century French Revolution feeling of political unrest and chaos. I highly recommend playing this game if you're into decision making strategy games where you need to manipulate and intimidate multiple characters as a Judge, Jury and Executioner toppled with creating political uprisings and gather more power for yourself in the field of Revolution.
